Firm Bilks Buyers By Dennis Campbell Bee Legal Affairs Writer State Atty Gen Eve Ile Younger claims a North Sacramento freezer and food-service company is bilking its customers with false advertising over-priced merchandise and unlawful collection procedures In a suit filed in Sacramento Superior Court against Town and Country Food Co 2660 Albatross Way and National Blue Ribbon Food Service Younger asked that the firm and lenders be ordered to stop collecting on sales contracts he says were obtained by fraud and to make restitution to buyers Also named defendants in the action are William Castleberry president of the company Constance Castleberry secretary of the firm Jack Troe manager and Dean Hubbs an employe Town and Country sells six-month orders of frozen meats and vegetables the freezers in which to store them and grocery staples According to Younger the meat and vegetable supplies usually fail to last the intended six months freezers worth $375 are sold for $749 and the meat is not prime grade The suit contends the firm uses mail advertising to misrepresent the price of groceries It claims buyers are told they can save as much as 40 per cent when in fact prices are the equivalent of or higher than normal retail costs Town and Country is also accused of representing that it serves 8000 to 18000 families that it offers free-trial supplies of vegetables and that its meat comes from steers None of the claims is true Younger says Deputy Atty Gen Peter DeMauro said he has information that the firm sells 100 to 150 freezers a month but he has no way of knowing how widespread the alleged deceptive practices have been "We've had complaints as far north as Redding and as far south as Fresno" he said DeMauro described the firm as "more sophisticated than the usual food operation" The action also accuses of the company of filing collection suits in counties other than where the sales contracts were made a violation of the state's civil code In addition to halting collection on contracts and requiring restitution Younger wants the court to order further misrepresentations stopped to require the firm to drop any collection suits it has pending and to assess $2500 in penalties for each misrepresentation and $50000 in punitive damages Truck Mechanics Approve Contract With Carriers A new 11-state Western contract which brings pay increases totaling 6180 during a 26-month period to truck mechanics in Sacramento has been ratified by an overwhelming vote of union members involved The contract between the International Association

Lythgoe Bee Caoiial Bureau The Reagan administration today came under fire from Sacramento County government for halting flood control works in the county and in the state The county's director of public works T G Campbell leveled the charge in a presentation on the county's water problems before the California Water Commission He reminded the commission that Gov Ronald Reagan has said he would not sign any authorization bills for federal flood control projects requiring state financial participation until the question of local cost-sharing is resolved "This position" he charged "has effectively terminated badly needed flood control projects "With the governor's position in mind I cannot help but suspect that the state administration is utilizing the tactic of delay on the Morrison Creek Project coupled with outright Completely Anonymous Sacramento will make its first try tomorrow at "no-name" venereal disease clinics in the hope that anonymity may help stem the area's most persistent epidemic The usual type of medical record-keeping threatens many young people reported Roger Tulloch a county public health adviser "They usually don't want to be identified by name and that's hampered VD control efforts everywhere the usual records are kept" he said ' The clinics will take no names keep no records and notify no parents or other authorities Movie-Type Ticket Instead each person showing up will be given a movie-type ticket with a number After a free checkup for Ex-Inmates Form Union To Fight 'Prison Injustice' A group of former inmates of state prisons has formed a union designed to fight what a leader called "injustices against prisoners" Chairman Martin Souza of the newly formed California Prisoners Union told newsmen late yesterday the nonprofit organization is made up of ex-inmates from various state penal facilities He said the group hopes to enlist membership behind prison walls "It's not an Uncle Tom organization" Souza said "We're trying to combat the injustices against prisoners that have been made by the State Department of Corrections the political forces and the courts" iVe'll Help you write your Class' fie Ads Dial 414-3113 The Bee (adv) threat of veto on federally authorized projects to force acquiescence by local agencies in the matter of cost-sharing on federal flood control projects" The total cost of the Morrison Creek Flood Control Project in the southern part of the county is $531 million Under present state law the county's share would be $873 million and the state's $1521 million But Campbell said that under pending legislation the county's share "could soar to about $1751 million with a corresponding decrease in state cost to $642 million "We in Sacramento County do not quarrel with a concept of cost-sharing" said Campbell "but we do oppose moves by federal and state agencies to shift more and more of the costs which are properly their responsibility to local property owners and taxpayers" He noted the bills in the legislature now propose cost-sharing formulas gonorrhea or syphilis the ticket will be torn in half and one stub kept by the clinic and the other by the patient The patient will then be asked to telephone in three to five days to be told the results of the tests The clinics also will provide immediate treatment for anyone with obvious signs of gonorrhea or syphilis Any such patient will be urged to send in his contacts for treatment again on an anonymous basis The success of the program said Tulloch will be totally dependent on whether the patients go into the dinics "If this works we may make some changes in our regular clinic procedure" he said The "no-name clinics" were orga 48000 Plan To Participate In Seven-Location Scout Fair '71 More than 48000 boys and adult

losnw 4 which recognize many of the areas of concern but the state generally would pay only a part of the costs "This is a significant departure from historical practice" he said "but one which we feel we can live with" As for one of the county's most pressing water problems — that of minimum flows in the American River downstream from Nimbus Dam Campbell said the key to the controversy is the proposed Hood-Clay unit of the federal Central Valleys Project The Hood-Clay Connection of the Folsom 'South Canal which taps the American at Nimbus would provide water to the important agricultural area of southern Sacramento County "The Hood-Clay Connection" said Campbell "is the key to providing for the preservation of the American River and the American River Parkway while at the same time assuring an adequate water supply for southern Sacramento " New Venereal Disease Clinics Are Set nized at the urging of community groups Clinics will run from 10 am to 4 pm at the Aquarian Effort 1239
